This is the complete KIT using the MEGAshield PCB for Arduino MEGA 2560 R3.

Image

Includes:

    1 x PCB
    1 x 2x18 female header
    1 x 10-pin female header
    1 x 2x3 female header
    1 x 6-pin female header
    5 x 8-pin female header
    2 x tactile switch (reset and general purpose)
    1 x 3-pin male header
    1 x jumper (to select 5V or 3.3V for the BUS)

Why the 6-pin female header? Because this kit is for R3 MEGA boards, but it is also R2 and older MEGA board compatible.

To assemble the MEGAshield for R3 compatibility, use the following headers:

    1 x 10-pin female header
    5 x 8-pin female header

For R3 and older MEGAshield compatibility, use the following headers:

    1 x 8-pin female header where the 10-pin header is located, installing it to the rightmost position
    1 x 6-pin female header where the bottom left 8-pin header is located, installing it to the rightmost position
    4 x 8-pin female header in the rest of the header locations

The rest of the headers and components are common for all compatibility modes.

Actually you can assemble it for R3 and use it on R2 or older MEGA boards, but sometimes the extra pins will bother or touch components in the base Arduino MEGA board.

Please, visit the product forum for more information, pictures, assembly guide, etc. http://forums.nkcelectronics.com/viewforum.php?f=16
